Using a knife in CSGO is really peculiar. In a game where it’s all about curated shots, alert reflex and precise movement, a situation where you bump into your opponent with a chance to punch a hole in his vest seems to be least likely. Well, if you played just a bit on casual servers, you know it’s not that uncommon. It’s a special type of touchdown if you manage to get a knife kill in competitive play. Given the tension of fragging someone with a knife, why would someone like to use a pocket knife to do it?
How about because it looks über-awesome and feels really good? Falchion Knife skins might have a very epic and high-register name, but in reality they are simple curved pocket knives, that are more reminiscent of the knife from 12 Angry Men than the sword it was named after. Yet, there’s something very fine about this specific choice of skins. Let’s look at some of those and talk about the sly cutters in general.
Best Falchion Knife Skins
While with the Falchion knife all skins look pretty decent, as a pocket knife can be both very morbid and very fun, we’ll look at a subjective choice of five of them that we consider most interesting.
You know how it goes with Marble Fade skins – you either love them, or you hate them. Even so, the candy coating makes the handy cutter look a bit less dangerous – to the demise of those looking at it up close. Whether you’re a fan of the blues and the reds or not, the market price is the market price, and a Falchion Knife Marble Fade is a treasure worth at least $220, but usually one and half times that much.
Let’s not even get started with the world of Case Hardened patterns. Depending on the seed and the submarket, those can have hundreds of recognisable variants. Let’s just focus on the fact that the charcoal burns look very realistic on such a palm-size blade. The non-StatTrak wears are at reasonable prices, so you can get one for anything between $120 and $200 if you fancy it, but a Factory New StatTrak Falchion Knife Case Hardened can raise that amount by the dozens if found with a rare pattern.
In a world of fades and rainbowy colours, sometimes a plain surface and the right tone just might do the trick. The Falchion Knife Ultraviolet is a league on its own. If you don’t care for the aesthetics, it’s quite common on the market at this point so it’s more attainable than most knives. The average price of all floats is around $150.
Isn’t that everyone’s favorite knife coat? Personally, I’m not very much into the glossy red texture, but no one can deny it really stands out from basically anything else in the game. Also, if the deep bloody paint of Crimson Web looks good on anything, then it surely looks good here, making it one of the best Falchion Knife skins ever. Battle-Scarred to Minimal Wear cost around $100 without StatTrak and a Factory New costs double that. With StatTraks, it’s less predictable – everything up to Minimal Wear StatTrak can cost between $100 and $200, and there are Factory News StatTrak listings with anything between $250 and $900. Maybe it’s the buyer’s market.
I might be less fun at parties, but in all honesty, this is my favorite mesh for the dexxy Falchion. This fully black skin looks both dangerous and slim on the lightly curved blade. Just right for delivering a backstab from the shadows behind the crates on a bombsite. Again, the price range is quite big here. Regular wears can sometimes go below $100 easily. StatTraks should cost 150% of that, but the upper floats are so rare (no listings on several markets of Factory New / Minimal Wear StatTraks as of June 2020) that sometimes sellers call for enormous money for them. The highest listing I could find was an astounding $1,317.68.
Where do Falchion Knife skins drop?
While knife skins are usually spread throughout many different cases to spice up the fun, all Falchion Knife skins are dropped specifically from the Falchion Case. The sheer chance of looting a knife from it is small, and then this is additionally spread throughout 13 different skins. If you’re aiming at something specific, you might try your luck with a couple of those chests, but if you’re not under your lucky star, better save up and straight-up buy the one that you wish the most.
How to trade a Falchion Knife
This might seem pretty obvious at first – just go to a market of choice and look for listings in your prefered wear level – but this might get a little more minuscule with Falchion Knife skins. Generally, they come from a little less than a common case that is not very expensive. It means that their prices are pretty stable. If they are influenced by anything, it is an occasional surge of market volume coming from people probably mass-opening Falchion case in search of a specific skin.
To buy a Falchion knife, first, make a small research on different markets – sites like SteamAnalyst might be quite helpful to do it quickly. Look for exactly your desired float and configuration. Usually, a market with a bigger volume of a given configuration will have better prices. Some of the least popular Falchion knife skins might just be listed on Steam Market.
If you’re planning on selling one, you three ways. One is doing similar research as while buying and list it with an adequate price on a marketplace of your choosing. Remember that selling it on Steam Market will allow you to raise the price a little bit, but the money you gain stays in the Steam Wallet. If you need money fast, especially if you have one of the mid-tier floats, consider using Skinwallet, where you just log in with your Steam account, deposit the item and cash out your balance in real cash within several clicks. There is also a third way, and it is to consider putting that off for some time. Why?
Falchion Knives are on point
There is a peculiar thing about CS GO falchion knife skins – because they all come from one case, it means that basically with each appearance of a new knife skin type, they all become rarer.

It might not seem like a great thing, but with these minuscule chances it really does make a difference on the base price.
